Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in December, 2023
We are having a Women’s Christmas Fellowship at Alicia’s home at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, December 15th. Instead of exchanging gifts, we decided to purchase and donate baby items for Today’s Choice Pregnancy Center in Newton, NJ. Your gift for their babies or mothers would greatly be appreciated.

Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in November, 2023
THANKSGIVING… a time to give thanks to our ever faithful God and a time to share His blessings with others.
Together with Newfoundland U.M.C. we provided 31 Thanksgiving baskets for local families. This mission work has been collaborated with our Sunday school children supported by Holy Faith Family for years.

LWML PRIMARY FOCUS
- Proclaiming Christ
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all peoples! (Psalm 96:3).
- Supporting Missions
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation (Mark 16:15).
- Equipping Women
Now may the God of peace … equip you with everything good that you may do his will (Hebrews 13:20–21).
- Serving Others
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another (1 Peter 4:10a).
